- Wedding: November 2013 - St. Augustine Beach, FL
My FMIL came over on Saturday to help out with some wedding details which included helping me and my FI with addressing invitations and wrapping utensil packs for the reception. They turned out really nice!
While we were sitting around wrapping the utensils, my FI told his mom he was excited for the wedding and happy that we didn’t elope like I wanted to. My FMIL got all teary eyed and said we couldn’t do that! FI is her only child and this is her only chance for a wedding. We told FMIL that having friends and family present and there to party with us was the most important part of getting married so it was really easy to toss the idea to elope.
I still secretly wish we had eloped though to avoid all of the planning but my FI and FMIL would have been sooooooooooooo disappointed!
